Oh, this is the Valentines Day Challenge! Our last chance to look and feel even more beautiful before the romance of the 14th. I'm starting to plan the romance today and part of it involves a red hot new outfit. Hope you're able to do something special with your sweetheart!
Now onto my new treasure. Look what I found in my basement today: A food scale! Silly me; it's been there for two years, but it was a gift to my husband and intended to help him make German family Christmas cookie recipes. So in my mind I had filed it away in the categories: "not really mine" and "for baking." Interesting how the brain can play tricks on you.
So here's a little food fun. Each of these pictures shows one ounce of the given food: wild rice, chocolate chips, lettuce, shaved ham, and grated cheddar cheese. I was shocked to find out how little an ounce actually is. Shocked, I tell you! Only 1/4 cup of rice, 56 chocolate chips, 4 lettuce leaves, 2 and 3/4 slices of ham and 1/4 cup of cheese.
This challenge is going to be a real eye opener for me with this scale in tow.
